    "The basic life skills that fell by the wayside in my youth were being taught to me by a barbell, of all things. Over time I noticed these qualities starting to bleed over into other areas of my life."

    Awesome read. Great job Jordan. Pretty much kills the RPE snake-oil strategy.

    Jordan this is an amazing testimony to the benefits of what we do and the improvement that we experience through the process of accumulating hard-fought strength adaptations. Starting Strength Dallas is extremely luck to have you. Keep charging ahead and may God strengthen you in your sobriety.

    Thank-you for sharing this. I'm looking forward to you achieving that 700 lb deadlift Rip has anticipated.

    Did you read the article? How would RPE Fit here?

    " I'd get under the bar and un-rack it. Goddamn, this feels so heavy. I don’t know if I can do this. I go down and the first rep comes up slowly. The second rep is slower, and the third rep slower still. I try my best to reign in my thoughts and will myself to keep going. I go down with the fourth rep and it’s painfully slow. I want to rack the bar so badly, I’m positive there’s no way I can get this last rep. I steel myself and do it anyway, and there’s this moment on the way up where the bar stops moving. It’s only for a second or two, but in that moment, time stops. I have this incredibly quick conversation with myself about whether I’m going to choose to keep pushing, or if I even can. And then it’s over, and all there is left to do is keep pushing or let gravity win. I barely finish the rep, in total disbelief that I did it. "
